To be launched along with new AirPods.
Fresh off its Spring Loaded event that saw the announcement of new iPad Pros, Apple TV, and a new iMac, Apple is now rumoured to be preparing for the launch of the HiFi tier for its popular music streaming service. The price point will be the same and is reported to be announced with the third-generation AirPods.
Currently, Apple Music does not have a HiFi option but instead includes a Digital Masters collection that brings higher-quality tunes. The Cupertino company said that a big percentage of all chart-topping music already takes advantage of the feature. But having a true HiFi option would certainly be a big boost to the streaming service, considering that has now amassed millions of subscribers in a short time.
Once Apple Music gets a dedicated HiFi option, it will join the ranks of Tidal and soon for Spotify in offering higher-quality streaming options that are fit for audiophiles. It was said that the new feature could debut with iOS 14.6, which is now currently available as a public beta, though no concrete evidence suggesting that it will be launching with the new version.
Still, we can’t help but get excited about HiFi support on Apple Music, a perfect complement to its great AirPods line.
